National Piping Centre Pipers Tryst Hotel

The National Piping Centre is a centre of excellence for the great highland bagpipes. Go along to experience live music, world class bagpiping, tours of the beautiful building and you could stay for a coffee at The Pipers Tryst.

The great highland bagpipe, perhaps the best known of Scotlands musical instruments and an ambassador for Scotland throughout the world, is accorded new prominence by the founding of The National Piping Centre.


Please note that unfortunately on Sunday the Museum Only will be open and the tour times are now 10am & 11am.


Come and Try The Bagpipe Sessions will take place on Sunday 22nd September for visitors to have a go at the national instrument.
Tours will take place periodically during the day and The Museum of Piping is free of charge for guests to look around on both days.

Just for Kids

Come and Try The Bagpipes workshop for children on the Sunday at 12pm.
This gives children the opportunity to have a tester of piping lessons and allows you, the parents, the chance to understand if your child is interested in taking up the bagpipes.
